The work staff of Paraty Tours was extremely helpful as they answered the many different questions I had on the different things to do while in Paraty. The staff was able to inform me about some if the history of the Paraty area as well as show me fun places to visit on a map. They gave me a map that depicted the area to help me get around. Pertaining to tours, they offer a great deal of different tours that anyone can take.

Paraty Tours played a significant role in my trip to Paraty because they provided all the transportation. The staff was very kind and pleasant; they always made sure all passengers on the bus were safe. I'd definitely recommend this tour company when planning your trip to Paraty.

If you want reliable, punctual people in order to keep your trip moving, Paraty Tours is where to go. Every time my group and I were on the move- Paraty Tour was there keeping up with us. The staff are great and nice. They did everything they could to accommodate the large group I was apart of. Use them!

Paraty Tours has the worst customer service in town. They are often late and do not keep the promise for their packages. And the sustainability thing is a joke especially when it comes to jeep tours which don't even require a jeep as they are on a paved road.
My transfer from Rio took 8 hours instead of advertised 4 hours!!! They did not even say they are sorry. There are smaller tour operators that care more for their clients.
